Okay .. maybe not that excited! Maxxie and Sophie will just be lying around until the Papillons are out in the Toy Group on Tuesday! There are 170 breeds competing this year including a NEW dog breed … the DOGUE DE BORDEAUX (aka the French Mastiff).
Should be exciting! We will round up the results later in the week.
The Hound, Terrier, Non-Sporting, and Herding group competition will be televised live Monday on USA Network from 8-9PM ET and continuing on CNBC from 9-11PM ET. The Sporting, Working, Toy, and Best In Show competition will be televised live Tuesday on USA Network from 8-11PM ET.
Breed judging highlight videos are available throughout the day on Monday and Tuesday on the Westminster Web site. These highlights will be available after the show, as well.
*Competition in each breed and variety may be viewed in streaming video at the Westminster website. This video will be available within two hours of completion of the judging of that breed. (Please note: A high speed connection is necessary for viewing.)
